ESOL Speaking/Listening Courses & Placement
BGSU’s ESOL speaking/listening courses are designed to assist students in improving their spoken English proficiency so that they can successfully participate in their academic courses and fulfill their assistantship duties. With specific focus on fluency building, pronunciation work, listening comprehension, note-taking, and presentation skills, the ESOL Program offers speaking/listening courses designed for both undergraduate and graduate students. Additionally, specific courses for International Graduate Assistants with Instructional Duties allow students to improve their English proficiency through assignments and tasks specifically related to teaching or tutoring at American universities.
Instruction in ESOL speaking/listening courses is often individualized, and students sometimes meet in tutorials with their instructors to focus on specific pronunciation and speaking goals.
